While Chris Paul wants to play with pal Carmelo Anthony in New York, he reportedly realizes the chances are slim.
“He has not asked for a trade to the Knicks because he knows the Knicks don’t have anything to offer,” ESPN quotes a source as saying. “He wouldn’t insult the Hornets by doing that.”
The source did not confirm or deny reports that a representative for Paul has told the Hornets their point guard wants to be traded to the Knicks, but league sources say team general manager Dell Demps will not take any action until he gets a clear directive from Paul himself.
The first day Demps could be allowed to talk to Paul is Dec. 9, when commissioner David Stern hopes to open training camps and fully lift the league’s labor lockout.
